The public has one more chance to view the EP High School historically themed works of art at the Hunt House. The 2024 show has been a great hit. Thank you to all these fine artists and Jade Sisti, art teacher. Upcoming: our July - Decem-ber exhibit is an event we’re very privileged to mount at Hunt’s: Onna Moniz and her unequaled collection of Black heritage, “The Past Can Guide the Fu-ture.” Please see the Summer Edition of the Gazette at our site.

And if, because of the Bridge closing, you didn’t make it to Weaver on Dec. 11 for “Love at the Indoor Court,” we offer an Open House AND a rematch. Come help us thank Tom Brun for his excellent work keeping the country’s oldest continuously in-play public tennis court up and running. Did you know this court was built by a woman in 1914?

(See Nov/Dec 2023 Gazette at www.ephist.org  for more information about this woman.)

“Second Serve: A Rematch with the Bridge”- Tom Brun of the Indoor Court
